(HERALD) Zanu-PF restructuring continues in Manicaland

Zanu-PF restructuring continues in Manicaland
Herald Reporter

FORMER Zanu-PF Manicaland provincial chairman Cde Mike Madiro, has bounced back after winning in elections to restructure provincial structures held in Mutare yesterday.

Cde Madiro was suspended with six other provincial chairmen for allegedly participating in an unsanctioned meeting held in Dinyane in Tsholotsho in 2004, in what was to be known as the Tsholotsho saga.

The ruling party however lifted the suspensions, paving the way for the former chairmen to contest party positions in the current restructuring. He beat former provincial chairman Cde Tinaye Chigudu and Zanu-PF youth league national secretary for administration Cde Tapiwa Zengeya.

In an interview after the election, Cde Madiro pledged to work with all party cadres including those he defeated.

Cde Basil Nyabadza was elected unopposed provincial vice chairman and Dr Ellen Gwaradzimba provincial secretary for administration.

Cde Edwin Siwela was elected secretary for finance.

Results of elections in the women’s and youth leagues were expected late last night.

In a related matter, the restructuring of districts in Harare Metropolitan Province will be held this weekend ahead of the provincial elections on November 30.

In a statement, Zanu-PF secretary for information and publicity in Harare province Cde Rickson Musarurwa said the restructuring starts tomorrow and would be completed on Sunday.

"We would like to inform all our members in Harare province that district restructuring for the whole province will be done this weekend as follows; DCC 1, 2 and 3 will be conducted on Saturday, November 22 at the usual venues starting at 10 am.

"The restructuring programme would continue the next morning in DCC 4, 5 and 6 at their usual venues starting at 10 am," he said.

The ruling party is restructuring its executives at all levels ahead of the party’s National People’s Conference set for Bindura next month. The exercise which has seen new provincial executives being selected in the Midlands, Mashonaland East and Central province is expected to go ahead in Masvingo province today.
